2008 Interview in Pati Pati Magazine January Issue

dbsk_all_300s
♥ How old were you when you believed in Santa Claus?

YC: Before I went to 2nd grade.

CM: I never believed in Santa.

JJ: Changmin doesn’t have a childhood.

CM: Maybe you’re right.

♥ I thought you wanted to relive your childhood memories! *laughs*

CM: Ah~ yeah *laughs* But, Santa Claus never existed in the first place!

JS: I always believed in Santa Claus until I got to the 2nd year of middle school.

♥ Wow, that’s really different. (Actually that’s not how he/she said it.. this is just the closest I could

translate)

JS: When I knew Santa Claus didn’t exist in reality, I really couldn’t believe it. I was so shocked I couldn’t eat
for a week.

♥ No way…

JS: Because there isn’t a meaning in life anymore. I keep thinking what there was left in this world to live for.

CM: So silly *laughs*

JJ: At some stage, it’s probably what we call ‘innocent’…

JS: Yes, that’s right *laughs*

JJ: No no, Changmin is right.

JS: No, what I had before was the pure innocence of Junsu.

♥ Do you mean it in the past tense?

JS: No, of course I still have it now. I was just thinking, the dreams we had as a child were like the stars we
see floating in the sky given to us.

CM: You make it sound like it’s real.

YH: Where have I heard those lyrics…

JS: Then, performing one song after another, for the ever so important you.

♥ Then how did you find out Santa wasn’t real?

JS: Then I was thinking, “Christmas is coming.. I wonder what I will get..” While watching the television, the
female MC said, “There aren’t any more children who believe in Santa anymore, right?”

♥ But there still is one here *laughs*

JS: Even so I think she’s wrong.

♥ Why?

JS: I asked my mother, “The girl is lying, right? Santa really does exist, right?” Then she told me honestly Santa
didn’t exist, and I said, “Ah, no way/really?” But since parents don’t look like people who lie, I accepted the
fact…. But because I suffered such a shock, I threw my [rice] bowl and ran into my room, crying to sleep.

♥ That’s so pitiful..

JS: Every year I used to look forward to the presents Santa would give me, but since then I no longer had that
feeling.

CM: I’ve never received any presents [from Santa, I suppose?].

JS: People who don’t believe don’t get presents.

CM: I don’t need things like presents *laughs*

YC: That’s because Changmin receives a lot of presents even when it’s not Christmas.

♥ That’s even better than Christmas.

CM: Actually there’s no such thing *laughs*

♥ How about Yunho then?

YH: I used to believe in Santa before I went to kindergarten. My dad would mimic Santa’s voice and use
[some kind of] telephone to talk to me. My mom would also do the same and leave a message for me in a
Christmas card.

♥ Do you still remember the content?

YH: “You’ve been a good boy this year, hold on tight to your dreams next year!” — It’s different every year.

CM: Not bad eh, I’m envious!

♥ Then, how about Jaejoong?

JJ: I always believed in Santa until I was in the 4th grade. Whenever it was Christmas, whenever I woke
up, there’d be a black stocking/pouch beside my bed and inside, it’d be filled with my favourite chocolate
pies and . They were from Santa. I was really happy. But when I was in the 5th grade, I saw my mom putting
the present by my bedside in the middle of the night. Then I knew all this while Santa had been my mother. Then
again, there’s only one Santa Claus, how can he travel the world to distribute presents to all the kids on
Christmas?

JS: That’s what I believed in, Santa is the angel of death!
[Everybody laughs]

Later on Yoochun talks about his brother and that when he found out Santa wasn’t real, he didn’t tell his
brother because it’d be awful if he knew since he was only 5. Then, when Yoochun went to the 6th grade, they
both left for America and when his brother told him Santa was an American, Yoochun said it’s true so he dressed
up as Santa and gave his brother a present.

Bump into this Christmas interview when I try to find the one above ^^

Xmas with THSK ~ Winter Love Talk

Q: How do you usually spend Christmas in Korea?

JJ: We’ll go drinking!

YC: There are many ways of celebrating. Having a party with friends or family or going out to play

Q: In Japan, they’ll spend Christmas with their other half. If it were you guys, what do you want to
do with your girlfriend?

YH: I want a normal date. Going to the movies together, sipping red wine while eating.. I would like to do
something like this

JS: I would like to walk on the streets holding her hand. I also want to take photos together to keep it as a
memory

YC: Even if it’s only for 5, 10 minutes, I would still want to meet up with my girlfriend…. Then I want to kiss
her.

Q: Wow~~ That was a very strong exclamation

CM: I…..

JS: Changmin isn’t interested in these kinds of things! (ie: Dating)

CM: That’s not true! I want to go to the amusement park, and then sit on the Ferris wheel together

JS: What do you want to do on the Ferris wheel?

CM: What? Just talking….

YC: I want to kiss.

JS: Stop it, you’re just thinking of kissing

Q: (laughs)Right. You just released a single entitled [Forever Love]. Does everyone here believe in
a love that’s everlasting?

YH & JS: I believe! *answering immediately*

JJ: I…….. would like to believe in it

YC: I think it’s very amazing

Q: What about Changmin?

JS: Changmin isn’t interested in these kinds of things!

CM: That’s not true! It’s a little different from what Junsu said. It isn’t that I’m not interested but it’s just that
I’ve never thought of it before. Because I don’t really have experience in this area

Q: Ah~ I see. So what kind of Christmas presents do you want to prepare?

CM: I would like to give my girlfriend the same kind of flowers that we used for the photo shoot. Then what I
would like my girlfriend to give me is the ‘times’ we spent from dawn to dusk

YH: Oh~~ I… I would like to become a Santa Claus just for one day for the one I like. I would like to do stuff
that only women do up to now, like cooking.

JJ: Umm………. I can’t think of anything just relying on my imagination!

YH: This person, is very practical, therefore, this question isn’t suitable for him

JJ: OK OK. *laughs* I’ll answer this question too. I want to book the whole amusement park for my girlfriend
then tell her ‘Just for today, the whole amusement park is yours!’

YC: I want to go too!

JJ: Why? *laughs*

YC: Then, I also have something I want to do. It’s very cold during winter right? I would like to wear a huge
jacket to cover my girlfriend *gesturing while he speaks* (T/N: He means he wants to wear a jacket large
enough to cover the 2 of them then they’ll be moving in unison.) I really want to do that

JS: You watch too much movies!

JJ: I want to do something else too! I want to bring my girlfriend to Shibuya and tell her ‘Wait for me in front
of 109’. Then on the large screen, I want to play a video that I made just for her. And I’ll tell her in the video
‘I only have you, this fellow, in my eyes!’ *screams*

JS: Is it okay to say ‘this fellow’?

JJ: Saying these words there, I really feel very embarrassed. However, there’s no difference! World peace!
(T/N: He said some popular phrase used in Japanese Variety shows nowadays)

JS: I really want to change that phrase for you

Q: *laughs* So how will you spend this Christmas?

YH: Last year, we had to work in Japan. There was a very amusing incident that occurred. After we finished
recording, we went to a Roppongi. Suddenly we heard someone go ‘Excuse me…’

JJ: When we heard that I wanted to say ‘Ah~ We’re discovered?? Our popularity is on the rise!!’

CM: Then the couple said to us ‘Can you please help us take a photo?’ So we helped the perfect couple take
a photo

JS: What do you want to do this Christmas?

Manager: …………

YH: We have to work this year too?! It’s okay…
